To clean drip coffee pots, use soap, water, a sponge and a towel. Let white vinegar sit in your coffee pot for about 45 minutes to an hour to remove mineral deposits with help from a professional cleaner in this free video on cleaning kitchen appliances.
Hi, my name is Mark Newman-Kuzel. I'm President/CEO of Maid in the U.S.A., and today I'm going to show you how to clean a coffee maker. You're going to need a couple materials for this, possibly a little bit of soap and water, a sponge and a towel. What you're going to want to do here is run your water on as hot as you can in your kitchen sink, take the hot water, rinse it out, put some more hot water in there. Pour just a little dollop of white distilled vinegar, keep that water running there. Generally you are going to want the distilled vinegar to sit in your pot for about 45 minutes to an hour, but for the sake of time here, I'm going to just show you the quick steps. We're going to pretend the vinegar water has already been in the coffee pot for 45 minutes to an hour, soaking, so the final steps here will be to just rinse this off really good. So, you can see that vinegar and water that's been soaking in there for a good almost hour is removing any mineral deposits, get the bottom side of that as well. You want to rinse it off. As you may have noticed earlier, I said we may use some dish soap, but distilled vinegar being a natural product, we don't have to worry about that dish soap, rinse it off, put it there, do a quick little rinse off on the top, which was not soaking, but we can use our vinegar and water rag. Rinse that off. Put it there to air dry. That's how you clean a coffee pot by hand, Mark Newman-Kuzel, with Maid in the U.S.A.
